Spring has come to the hundred acre wood!




I love the spring time. I love seeing flowers poke their little heads up in the beds. I love being outdoors working, reading and playing. I love hanging laundry on the clothesline. I LOVE the seasons when I can be in the fresh air best of all. And I know spring is not far away. The signs are all there.

There is a pile of flip flops by the front door.

I painted my toe nails this morning.

The kids are playing box car children in the back yard.

Our Saturday projects have moved from sanding dry wall in the basement to pouring concrete and planting blueberries in the yard.

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches

Baths after dinner are a matter of necessity not just a way to entertain the children until bed time.

The little ones spent all afternoon having wagon rides around the yard.

Open windows

Samuel is content to sit on the parked tractor for an hour at a time watching his Pa build stuff in the yard.

The trail of dirt from the front door to the bathroom and kitchen

Sheets strung over trees in the yard to make forts, tents and houses

My kitchen window is quickly growing a collection of dried blooms from the fall and spring clover that my little guys bring to me

The sound of laughter coming in my kitchen window as kids discover they can swing higher than they could last fall

Talk of summer tomatoes and corn at dinner

The sound of wind chimes as the breeze blows

The evening shadows on the walls as I hear the cars pass our house heading home for the evening

Neighbors shouting hello out their car windows as the pass by

Afternoon walks with the baby in her buggy through our neighborhood

I hope you all are enjoying the blessings of some spring weather!
